DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - One of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s first planes is back in the air a decade after it crashed into a lake, killing three people.

The Waco plane, built in 1928, was originally owned by the school’s co-founder John Paul Riddle. They owned a fleet of Waco airplanes that were used to send packages to various parts of the U.S.

More than a decade ago, three people were killed when the plane crashed into a central Florida lake. It was brought out of the wreckage and fully restored a few years later.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal (https://tinyurl.com/m5gfwdj ) reports the plane took a test run Tuesday. This weekend, it will be featured in the Wings and Waves Air Show, leading a fleet of six Embry-Riddle airplanes.
